Sept 29 marked the launch of two projects – the 215-unit Mayfair Gardens and the 428-unit The Jovell. At the close of balloting, the sales tally at Mayfair Gardens was 81 units. This means that 37.7% of the project is sold on the first day of launch, which is considered "respectable" in the wake of the latest property cooling measures.
Over the past fortnight in the lead up to the launch of Mayfair Gardens, about 200 cheques were collected by marketing agents as expressions of interest at Mayfair Gardens, hence, units sold reflect a 40% conversion rate.
